How do you get shared object build IDs from a core file?

http://stackoverflow.com – gcc generally embeds a build ID into shared objects to allow symbols -- and the shared object itself -- to be automatically retrieved. The scheme is documented here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/FeatureBuildId I have a user-mode core dump that I want to analyze and I know, based on the article above, that it very likely contains the build IDs for all of the shared objects that I care about (a couple of dozen in total). If I could extract the build IDs from the core dump then I could find the correct versions in our archives and be able to debug this core dump (and future core dumps (HowTos)
